Key Lime Pie Ice Cream (No Churn Recipe)

I’m not a huge ice cream devourer, but I am a mega fan of key lime pie. So I combined the two and voila: easy and simple key lime pie ice cream.

This recipe is simple. No special machines or equipment. In fact, this recipe only uses five ingredients.

Now that’s what I call a dessert, I love it when I don’t have to put any effort into anything.

I’m never buying ice cream again (that’s probably a lie) this was just way too easy, and dare I even say – fun?

No Churn Key Lime Pie Ice Cream

I remember seeing a video of a recipe from Spaceships and Laserbeams that used whipped cream and sweetened condensed milk and it has been engraved into my brain since then. So the base of the recipe is based on Stephanie’s Cookie Monster Ice Cream but with different additions to make it key lime. Thanks, Stephanie!

I was inspired by the Key Lime Pie ice cream I keep buying from the grocery store. It has this incredible graham cracker ripple swirled throughout it that is seriously making me drool right now.

Oh my gosh.

Graham Cracker Crumble made with coconut oil.

I was looking at the ingredients and it had a million things in it, so I thought I would simplify it and attempt it myself. The graham cracker ripple swirl ended up being more of a crumble but whatever – it’s still good! I personally layered the ice cream and graham cracker crumble and attempted a swirl (since I used an ice cream tub to store it in) but this key lime pie ice cream would also be incredible with the crumble simply folded in the “batter”.

TBK’s Pro Tip: I personally used this 1 qt ice cream tub (plus two of the 6oz mini-tubs) to store this, but you could also line a loaf pan with parchment paper and cover with saran wrap.
